AIMA & CAIS Responsible Investing Survey

January 2, 2018 4:42 pm |

Each year, the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit gathers industry leaders and experts for a panel on responsible and impact investing, a topic that has swept across the financial services industry and caught the attention of some of the world’s largest asset managers, including BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital and more.

This year, we wanted to dig a little deeper and find out more about how alternative fund managers view and approach responsible investing. That’s why we are partnering with the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), one of the leaders in the responsible investing movement, to develop a survey and report specifically dedicated to this topic. In May 2017, AIMA, together with the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), released a due diligence questionnaire (DDQ) for hedge funds in response to growing institutional investor demand for responsible investing strategies and capabilities. In addition to the DDQ, the survey and report we are developing will be the next step in determining how firms have embraced responsible investing and identifying what challenges still remain.

The survey and other industry trends will be discussed in more detail during the impact investing panel at CAIS 2018, which will feature:
